PowerPoint Lesson Plan
Brief Description: In order to review for the unit test, students will play Jeopardy. They will review grammar, vocabulary and culture.
Objective: Students will review grammar, vocabulary and cultural aspects that they have learned throughout the unit. They will be able to discover where they stand in their own learning and will further learn concepts that they have not fully grasped. They will be able to see what concepts they need to further review before the test. Students will be able use the future and present perfect tenses, use vocabulary and answer questions about Venezuelan culture.
Rationale: It is important to give students an opportunity to review before giving the final test. By this time, students will have been exposed to a lot of material. A review game is a good opportunity to see where students are struggling and to step in and further explain these areas before testing students on them.
